STFC Ernest Rutherford Research Fellowships 2019

The 2019 round of Ernest Rutherford Fellowships has been announced by the Science and Technology Research Council (STFC), see: http://www.stfc.ac.uk/funding/fellowships/ernest-rutherford-fellowship/.

These are fully funded five-year research fellowships to be held in science areas supported by STFC. If you are interested in applying for one of these to be hosted by the Astrophysics Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University you can find more details about our research at: http://www.astro.ljmu.ac.uk/research

The STFC deadline for ER Fellowships is 26 September 2019, but to conform with necessary processes, candidates must submit their applications to the ARI by Friday 9th August 2019. We encourage excellent potential applicants to contact the ARI as soon as possible for informal discussions. STFC limit the number of candidates that each institute can put forward (ARI has 3), which means that we need to have a round of internal selection. We intend to make a final decision on which applications we will support no later than Wed. 14th August 2019. If you wish to apply please send a 1-page draft research proposal following STFC’s guidelines for ER Fellowships, a CV and list of publications to: Nate Bastian (Head of Research) by Friday 9th August 2019.

Additionally, the deadline for the Royal Society University Research Fellowship is 6th September 2019. These are also prestigious fully funded five (+3) year fellowships. See https://royalsociety.org/grants-schemes-awards/grants/university-research/

While there are no official quotas, please contact a member of staff at ARI if you are interested in applying, no later than 9th August, 2019 (i.e. the same date as the Rutherford pre-applications).
